With the return of winter, comes the return of the igloos…but not just one! Since Coppa Club launched the famous igloos last year, they’ve since been copied by dozens of restaurants across the world, with a plethora popping up around London!
Over looking Tower Bridge, with views of the Shard – watch the world go by from the truly beautiful igloos at the Coppa Club, as you enjoy festive cocktails and sample the European menu that ranges from small plates and snacks, through to sourdough pizzas and grilled mains; all whilst snuggled up with a sheepskin blanket. Just like last year, the igloos have proved so popular that bookings for the iconic dining experience have fully booked up. However, don’t despair, as there are a limited number of spots kept aside for walk-ins. All bookings are for a maximum of 2 hours. Available now until the 30th March 2018. Coppa Club, 3 Three Quays Walk, Lower Thames Street, London EC3R 6AH. For more information visit http://www.coppaclub.co.uk
